Beaded Blocks and Borders in Batik 19

Beaded Blocks and Borders in Batik 19

Lots of little scraps from a scrap basket will make this … if they are coordinated colours, so much the better.

    • Peggy,

      Thank you.

      I have loved Strings of Beads since I first saw a black and white picture of a block many years ago. Drew lots of them on scraps of paper before I made one, then started playing with the designs in EQ.

    I agree, very pretty. And a good scrappy quilt, and you could coordinate the colours if you so desired.

    • Marie,

      Yes! I think most of these designs would work as both random and coordinated scrappies. In this series I have used one batik fabric, and being a collection of colours it looks a bit scrappy, and a bit random scrappy. In real quilts I have used just scraps!

    I also love the beaded quilts. I have started collecting scraps for the beads but still have to decide on the definite pattern and you have so many choices! Love them all so it makes it hard to decide.

    • Cindy,

      It is very hard to decide … I did a couple of very basic designs, including the design from the thirties which started all this, to work out how to do them with fusibles, but cannot make up my mind which design to use to show off what else can be done with those little beads!
